First, thank you for this great free plugin. We’ve been using it for many years. Recently after upgrading WP to 5.9.5 (I know it’s an old version but bear with me). The following redirects no longer work Request:/blog-test/blog-title.html?lang=en However if I remove the ?lang=en parameter, it will work again. We’ve never had this issue before. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have been using this plugin for years with no problems. This morning I noticed I had many 404 errors and none of the redirects were working. The plugin currently says it’s untested with WordPress 6.0.1 which is the version I am using. Until a patch happens this plugin is useless.

Have been using this for a long time on a lot of sites, but something happened to the focus of the developers. The import functionality has been broken for quite a while now. Even if you import the export file of the plugin itself, it doesn’t work.

Just started using this again after making some changes to slugs that are ranking well in google. Strange bad reviews with this plugin, there is nothing wrong with it, it works perfectly fine. Some user experience is required when redirecting URL’s and the proper way to do it. Site configuration (such as SSL) will determine how redirects happen as well as many other factors. This plugin simply redirects a URL -> NEW URL as 301 Redirect, that is all, everything else after this point has nothing to do with the plugin. It bothers me when I see „bad“ reviews for a developer trying to make money with a free plugin, this developer at least allows the two notices to be dismissed and never to be seen again unlike many other popular plugins with dashboard nag screens every time the dashboard is loaded. However, I do recommend the developer fix the example on the interface above the redirect url section that shows an example of the URL. Destination example: https://www.yoursite.com//new-page/ Should be a single slash Destination example: https://www.yoursite.com/new-page/ Great work, I appreciate the plugin.
